Travelling journal goes to China
Media Update
Friday, April 19, 2013 - 09:00

After successfully passing through the hands of an Indonesian farmer, the travelling journal now makes its way to the agricultural village of Chenguan in the Yunnan Province of China. The next rural woman to be writing entries in the journal is Li Zizhen, a leader who splits her time between agricultural work, work for a women's union, and raising a family.

Li has had more exposure to the outside world than the typical farmer, and speaks eloquently about her life and the challenges facing her village. She is passionate about preserving the culture of the Bai ethnic minority through dance and song, and is active as well in promoting ecological agriculture practices.

Our Stories, One Journey: Empowering Rural Women in Asia will collect everyday writings from eight rural women in different countries to give a personalised voice to a growing clamor to transform agriculture into a more equitable and sustainable system. The initiative is led by Pesticide Action Network Asia and the Pacific (PAN AP), Asian Rural Women's Coalition (ARWC), and East Asia GROW Campaign.
